The new state-of-the-art campus at Grangegorman is in Dublin’s North West Inner city. Grangegorman is a vibrant and rapidly changing area on the edge of the City Centre. With strong transport links and a host of amenities and attractions, it’s an ideal location for the University’s flagship campus. While the local area has undergone a considerable amount of development and modernisation in recent years, which can be seen in particular in places like Smithfield, the local villages of Stoneybatter and Phibsborough still maintain a strong sense of community.

The campus, directly served by the Green Luas line, is just a 10 minute Luas journey from the city centre with stops at Broadstone and at Grangegorman. You can view a Google map showing the location of the campus here.

With a central location just minutes from Dublin city centre, the new TU Dublin Campus at Grangegorman is easily accessible by foot, bike, bus, luas and train. Visit our Getting Here page for more information on all the options that are available to you.

Students are at the heart of all that we do in TU Dublin, and we want all of our students to succeed and have an enjoyable college experience.

We have a range of services here in Grangegorman to help and support you.

Rathdown House, in the heart of the campus, is the home of a one-stop-shop for students where they can seek help on a host of issues, such as fees, exams, registrations, IT, student cards, international issues, counselling services, health and disabilities.
